Museum at Mountain Home Relocation

52241488_1604065150263188_r.jpegWant to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Museum at Mountain Home, and any donation will help make an impact. The Museum has until Dec 31st to move out of its current location on the Mountain Home VA campus, and needs your help to raise funds for packing, moving, and storage. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

The current Museum at Mountain Home tells the story of the development of health care in South Central Appalachia from the earliest practitioner to the present.  The Museum at Mountain Home is the result of years of interest in medical history by area healthcare professionals and the community.  

Established in 1995 by the generous donation of the use of a historic building by the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) and the continued support of ETSU Quillen College of Medicine, the museum now looks to transition into a new home in order to accommodate VAMC renovations.  Safe packing, moving, and storage will be key to preservation of the numerous artifacts housed within the current museum.   

The Museum features artifacts collected through by VAMC staff and East Tennessee State University's Quillen College of Medicine Department of Learning Resources, History of Medicine Department.  The displays encompass the people, events and activities that have shaped medical care in the region.  
The rich medical and military history includes such diverse topics as Native American herbal medicine, the Veterans Association Medical Center (Mountain Home), advances in medical treatment during wartime, and the development of regional health care and educational institutions.  From the office of the first licensed physical therapist in the state, to an iron lung, there are truly some impactful exhibits housed by the museum. 

The museum looks again to the healthcare providers and community for support in preserving the story of our region’s medical and military history.  If interested in contributing to the financial needs to support the relocation of the museum please donate here or send checks to:  Nakia Woodward, PO Box 70693, Johnson City, TN 37614.  Thank you for your support!
